Have you ever seen a child after being told to clean his room, drag his feet, fold his arms, and lug himself ever so slowly towards that dreaded room? You know he is walking in the right direction, but it will take him three hours to get there, and once he gets there he sits down to read a book or play instead of getting down to business. In a stirring sermon I listened to recently, the speaker asked if that just might be a description of us as Christians. I am a child of God—that’s what I became when I was submerged under that water and had hands laid on me.

Stewardship 101
by Rachel Henderson
(Posted Posted July 23, 2014)

Just what does the Bible have to say about money? Are we as Christians held to some higher standard when it comes to money? Are there practical tips in Scripture we can use today with regard to our own budgets? I believe the answer to those questions is a resounding yes! Rather than go through the specifics of how to create a budget, plan, save, and so forth, I want to examine the fundamentals of monetary stewardship and how it begins in the heart (There are other excellent resources for those other things, such as UCG’s booklet Managing Your Finances).

A friend of mine recently moved away to attend college. As the move date approached, she started questioning her decision and asking herself if she was doing the right thing. This questioning is normal and it took me back to that time in my life.

Mayhem, Murder or a Moral Compass?
by Michael Snyder
(Posted Posted July 18, 2014)

They used to call my city "Naptown." No more. Today para-military SWAT teams patrol the night streets of Indianapolis, trying to cool a savage murder streak that threatens to set a bloody new record of life-ending assaults. Recently a resident fatally cut down an Indianapolis police officer with an AK-47, spawning fresh outrage. Opportunistic politicians pointed fingers and called for law and order.

Turning Point: The Scopes Trial
by Dan Dowd
(Posted Posted July 17, 2014)

History rarely turns on the impact of one lone event. It is more common that a major historical shift is built on the smaller events that precede it. The current anti-religious environment in the United States did not arrive without prior notice. Those seeds were planted a long time ago. However, a major public relations blow was dealt against having God at the center of society and education back in late July, 1925. It was known as the Scopes Monkey Trial.

by Aaron Booth
(Posted Posted July 16, 2014)

Are there items that you always carry with you everywhere you go? Things like small items that are always stuffed into your pockets, bag or purse that are used for common daily tasks or used in emergency situations? You never leave the house without them and if you forget them, you feel like you’re not fully prepared for the day.

(Posted Posted July 15, 2014)

We are often told that to love others is to also accept their lifestyles, regardless of what the Bible may say about it. Society expects us to love and accept others as they are, and forbids us to judge in any way.

"How Could I Fall For That?"
by Victor Kubik
(Posted Posted July 10, 2014)

I had a great story that I was just about tell you that someone else told me. But I won't. Why not? The story sounded good. I was moved by it. It had a great point. But after trying to verify the facts of a public event, I found that the real story was a lot different than what others said about the same event. It didn't check out. The person may have been just passing on a narrative that someone else told him. However, I'm not going to repeat something that I'm not sure is accurate.
